"Barricades" is a most attractive piece, and I knew it wasn't going be long before you recorded it for us. It deserves more than to be checked off a list in a couple of weeks, and I would recommend not rushing to re-record it in the near future, but instead to let it mature in your subconscious for a few months first.
A few months? That's torture!
I already do know how I want to the piece to sound like. I want it to go faster, but pretty much with the same elements I applied in this first version.
All the things regarding dynamics on piano versus harpsichord....I don't really know where I stand. I understand both sides of the argument, but tend to lean toward applying dynamics on the piano in order to add more interest to the music. At least that's how I feel with this piece. Like I've said before, this piece just doesn't sound Baroque to me, so maybe I can get away with it...
You probably love the low notes too much, I feel this is slightly bottom-heavy at the expense of the other voices. Are you using pedal, or does it just sound as if you are? Try it without.
I applied a bass boost in my post-processing. But I've been doing that with all my recordings for a while now. Perhaps since this piece is mostly in the lower register, then a bass boost is too much. At home I have a sub-woofer along with my other speakers and I sometimes the bass blows me away a little too much too. But then I listen with head phones and it's not too much. I never seem satisfied with my sound and keep experimenting.
I have Friday off work, so I'll make my new recording of this piece then. I'll not boost the bass this time. I would appreciate very much if you and anyone else would let me know if the sound is improved.
Thank you for the comments, Rainer!
